Dairy Free Banana Smoothie

This dairy free banana smoothie is so creamy and flavorful. You can also use any dairy free milk you have on hand, so it keeps things simple.

This dairy free banana smoothie is incredibly refreshing and delicious! It is perfect for the summer time.

In my opinion, banana smoothies are one of the most customizable smoothies out there.

It tastes delicious as is, or you can add peanut butter to make it a dairy free peanut butter banana smoothie.

Want it for breakfast? Add oats to make a dairy free banana breakfast smoothie.

Both sound good? Add both peanut butter and oats for a dairy free peanut butter banana breakfast smoothie.

Use coconut milk for a topical flavored banana smoothie.

Or, you can switch out the peanut butter for almond butter and use almond milk to kick up the almond flavor.

What Type of Dairy Free Milk should I use?

Really, you can use anything you’d like, though I’d recommend a mild flavored milk.

Oat milk works nicely and so does almond milk. You could use coconut too, if you want a more tropical flavor, but then you probably won’t want to mix in any of the optional additions.

What Type of Dairy Free Yogurt Should I use?

You should use a neutral or vanilla flavored dairy free yogurt.

Yogurt made from soy, almonds, coconut, and oats all will work fine here.

What if I don’t have or want yogurt in my smoothie?

The yogurt makes the smoothie creamy, but it can easily be left out, if you prefer.

All you have to do is switch the yogurt out for more dairy free milk.

How To Freeze Fruit For Smoothies

To make smoothies even easier, freeze fresh fruit into portions. 

To freeze bananas for smoothies, peel banana and cut into round disks.

Arrange in one layer on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Slide the baking sheet into the freezer and freeze until hard (two to three hours).

When the bananas are hard, divide it between freezer-safe bags and keep it in the freezer for your next smoothie.

If you’d prefer the lazy way, I often just stick a full banana into a freezer safe bag and blend it whole.

Banana Smoothie Variations

If you’re looking for a plain banana smoothie, this recipe alone is delicious.  However, I’ve given a list of optional additions if you’d like.

Add the listed amount of peanut butter for a peanut butter banana smoothie.

Add oats to make this banana smoothie a breakfast banana smoothie.

Or, you can add both oats and peanut butter to make a peanut butter banana breakfast smoothie.

If you don’t use extremely ripe bananas (or over ripe bananas,) you may not find it sweet enough, which is where the honey comes in.

Make Ahead of Time

You can easily make this recipe ahead of time.

All you have to do is put the bananas, yogurt, and anything else you want in the blender – except oats, if you plan on using them.

Blend it up until it is nice and smooth. Then, pour the smoothie into a freezer safe resealable bag.

Once you’re ready to use the smoothie, let it sit out until it’s defrosted enough to put into the blender.

Place the smoothie in the blender, add the milk and oats, if desired, then blend until smooth again. Once it has a nice pourable consistency, put it in a cup, and serve.
